Top 10 Teams: #6: Dinwiddie Football


That was the term to define Dinwiddie through the 2016 regular season in high school football, their second win a pasting of their longtime playoff rival Hanover. They continued to post huge wins, the closest game a 28-19 victory over Thomas Dale, the only time in the regular season that the offense was held under 40 points.

Huge blowout wins over Courtland and Monacan set up the quarterfinal showdown with Lake Taylor, a nemesis for everyone in 4A. Down much of the second half, Dinwiddie staged a fourth quarter comeback for the ages. CLICK HERE to read about it in our #10 Moment of The Year announced earlier this week.

A 28-14 win over Lafayette put Dinwiddie at 14-0 and in Zable Stadium for the 4A State Championship Game against Salem, the defending champs. And, in a game which showed the heart, resiliency and guts of the Generals, Dinwiddie fell just one play short of championship glory. CLICK HERE to read about the game, our #8 Game of The Year.

A 14-1 record, 701 points of total offense, a defense which gave up just 196 points in fifteen games. An entire county, and region, was proud of the work and heart showed by Dinwiddie Generals Football, our #6 Team of 2016-17!
